משק הפועלות

[תאור האתר מופיע בשלט נפרד]
משק הפועלות
כאן הוקם בשנת 1923 משק הפועלות, ובו הכשירו את החלוצות לעבודה בחקלאות. הקימה אותו מועצת הפועלות (לימים נעמ"ת), וניהלה אותו לאה מירון-כצנלסון יחד עם שמונה פועלות נוספות.
בשנים הראשונות חיו החלוצות באוהלים, בתנאים קשים, והיו מביאות מים בדליים מוואדי מוסררה, הוא נחל איילון, להשקיית בעלי-החיים והצמחים. בשנת 1926 הושלמה הקמת בניין הקבע לפועלות, ובמהלך שנות השלושים נבנו במקום בנייני קבע נוספים. בשנות השיא של משק הפועלות היו בו ענפי משק רבים: רפת, מחלבה, לול, כוורת, גן ירק, משתלה ופרדס.
משק הפועלות נסגר בשנות החמישים, והפך לאולפן ללימוד עברית.

The working women farm

[Site description appears on separate sign]
The working women farm
A workers’ farm was established here in 1923, where the pioneers were trained to work in agriculture. It was established by the Workers’ Council (later NAMAT), and was run by Leah Miron-Katzenelson along with eight other workers.
In the early years, the pioneers lived in tents, in harsh conditions, and would bring water in buckets from Wadi Musrara, which is the Ayalon River, to irrigate the animals and plants. In 1926, the construction of the permanent building for the workers was completed, and during the 1930s, additional permanent buildings were built on the site. In the peak years of the workers’ farm, it had many branches of the farm: a barn, a dairy, a chicken coop, a hive, a vegetable garden, a nursery and an orchard.
The workers’ farm closed in the 1950s, and became an Ulpan for learning Hebrew.
